Summary

Wear just 33 items for three months and get back all the joy you were missing while you were worrying what to wear.

In Project 333, minimalist expert and author of Soulful Simplicity Courtney Carver takes a new approach to living simply - starting with your wardrobe. Project 333 promises that not only can you survive with just 33 items in your closet for three months, but you'll thrive just like the thousands of woman who have taken on the challenge and never looked back. Let the decluttering begin!

Ever ask yourself how many of the items in your closet you actually wear? In search of a way to pare down on her expensive shopping habit, consistent lack of satisfaction with her purchases, and ever-growing closet, Carver created Project 333. In this audiobook, she guides listeners through their closets item-by-item, sifting through all the emotional baggage associated with those oh-so strappy high-heel sandals that cost a fortune but destroy your feet every time you walk more than a few steps to that extensive collection of never-worn little black dresses, to locate the items that actually look and feel like you. As Carver reveals in this audiobook, once we finally release ourselves from the cyclical nature of consumerism and focus less on our shoes and more on our self-care, we not only look great, we feel great - and we can see a clear path to make other important changes in our lives that reach far beyond our closets. With tips, solutions, and a closet-full of inspiration, this life-changing minimalist manual shows listeners that we are so much more than what we wear and that who we are and what we have is so much more than enough.

Critic reviews

"Courtney does an extraordinary job helping us address the physical and emotional clutter that comes with our wardrobe." (Ryan Nicodemus, The Minimalists)

"For me, the key to making life simple again started in my closet with Project 333. I’ve learned to not let the things I wear, wear me out. I’m dressing with less, and feeling twice as confident. And for that I’m truly grateful. Allow yourself the possibility of life transformation by simply starting with your wardrobe." (Angel Chernoff, New York Times best-selling author of Getting Back to Happy and 1000+ Little Things)

"I opened Project 333 thinking I could use some help scaling down my closet. Little did I know this practical guidebook would lead me to uncover a major source of stress in my life. Within days of practicing the principles in Project 333, I began seeing my life’s clutter and excess for what they really were - unnecessary burdens that have weighed me down for decades and distracted me from what really matters. With wisdom, humor, compassion, and practicality, Courtney Carver teaches us to notice what’s actually serving the life around us so we can begin making sound emotional and financial choices for ourselves and those we love. Because of Project 333, my family is discovering unlimited possibilities created by living lighter and happier with less!" (Rachel Macy Stafford, New York Times best-selling author of Hands Free Mama, Hands Free Life, and Only Love Today)

Great kick starter

I’m a huge fan of project 333 and have been a follower for a while. I would say this book is best for newcomers to the project or people who haven’t decluttered for a while.

Very Inspiring

Courtney shares lots of knowledge and insights about attachment to our things, how we live, and how to destress your life with less. I found her through the Marie Kondo teachings and feel this is a great book for those who are motivated to downsize or make life more simple. I am personally about things that spark joy, and this book will help achieve that as well as help those in search for a less cluttered life, and to find joy in the things we already have. I have been personally motivated by this and have already created a giveaway bag of things I never thought I would be able to let go of. After hearing her perspective, it truly shifted my view on certain things I owned. I will definitely be applying her travel suggestions to my lifestyle immediately, and see where project 333 shall help my life next.

Blog Content in a Book

I love Project 333 but I feel that this book was just a way to make money off putting a small amount of blog content (which is sadly no longer accessible) into a book. I am going to give it a second listen to see if maybe I missed something that makes it special. However, PROJECT 333 IS STILL AN AMAZING CONCEPT REGARDLESS, AND THIS BOOK IS WORTH YOUR TIME IF YOU DIDNT GET TO READ THE ORIGINAL BLOG RULES.

Such an insightful book

I love that this book is about so much more than the clothes on the hangers in our closets. Everybody should read this book.

A Simplicity-lover’s dream book!

Courtney Carver’s calm, steady voice perfectly leads the listener to not just embrace the idea of dressing with less, but to consider the deeper impact a simpler closet can make on your entire life. I have read 25+ books on minimalism and simplicity, and this book easily makes it into my Top 5! Highly recommend!

Great book

I truly enjoyed this book. It made me see everything in a new way. I am ready to begin my 333 project challenge and enjoy extra time for the stuff I really love -like my family, or my pets, my me time, and cooking together with my husband.

Very informative and enlightening

This is an amazing book, IF, you are ready to make a change in your life to living with less. There are some hard truths, but inspiring nonetheless. During the latter half of the book, I was cleaning out my closet to start my own project 333. Good read, I will be listening again very soon.

Inspiring read

This was a great book to listen to. I am inspired to go through my closet and drawers and pack away most of my clothing. I can see that with less I will have more.
